Chris Brown's Category

The 33-year-old rapper and artist was nominated alongside Mary J. Blige, Robert Glasper, Lucky Daye and PJ Morton in the Best R&B album category. His album Breezy (Deluxe) earned him a nomination, and by all predictions, he was the guy for it until the winner was announced, and it wasn't Brown!

Robert Glasper Snatched The Award

Grammy Award

The night's win went to Jazz artist, Glasper, and this decision didn't sit well with Brown, who then went on a mini rant on his Instagram page and mocked Glasper with "Who the f**k is Robert Glasper?" and then followed up with "Ima keep kicking y'all ass! Respectfully."

The Under The Influence singer also added, "I gotta get my skills up, Ima start playing the harmonica."

'Breezy ' Album

Chris Brown

Breezy is Brown's tenth studio album which is also his nickname. It was released on June 24, 2022, as the follow-up to his 2019 album, Indigo. He released the deluxe version a week after Breezy dropped, and nine more songs were added.

It featured appearances from Anderson Paak, Davido, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Jack Harlow and other artists.

Robert Glasper Expressed His Excitement A Few Days Before The Show

Days before the award, Glasper expressed his joy at being part of the event.

"Man it's been a long ride!!!!" he wrote on Instagram on Feb. 2. "Congratulations and Good Luck to everyone at the Grammys!".

The Jazz artist is definitely not a newcomer in the game, as he has previously won four Grammy awards and bagged nine nominations throughout his career. He also collaborated with well-known artists like Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, and Mac Miller.

"Congratulations my brother .. I would like to apologize if you took offense to my reaction at the Grammys .. you were not the intended target and I know I came off really rude and mean."

The singer accused the Grammy board of not doing black artists their "due diligence" as he cited that he and Glasper should "never be in the same category" because they sing "two totally different vibes and genres."
